Default Wish App For Toys/ Games?

DW uses an app called Wish. I never paid much attention to it as I just thought it was a site she bought clothes off of occasionally. She told me last night they had toys and kid games on it. I haven't looked at it yet but has anyone used it? Considering it's a "bargain" site I'm assuming it is Oriental Trading type stuff. I just was wondering if the stuff you've gotten from there (if there is anything on there) was decent.

Thanks

I heard...and I could be wrong, because this is from people online, not personal experience...but I heard that Wish is a bunch of stuff from China and super cheap quality.

I know my Stepdaughter has ordered stuff off of there, but she is a size 0-2, so the clothes often fit her. Most clothes are for smaller people (made to fit Chinese women, ex. size large is a size small here).

my sons ordered some fidget spinners and cubes from the site. Took a while to get them in because it does come from China. The site has lots of stuff!

Iíve read a lot about people paying for items and never receiving them, thatís what a majority of the reviews say anyways. My sister ordered a necklace from them a few months ago, it did come but the quality sucks.

Thanks Ladies

That's the kind of stuff I was wondering about. DW uses it as kind of an impulse buy/ retail therapy site so she really doesn't care that much if it takes a while/ wrong size. I think I'll skip it for daycare stuff.

I have bought maybe half a dozen things from Wish. All pure junk. I have a client who buys cute clothes and shoes from Wish, and she loves the app. I would just hope for the best with whatever I ordered!

Ive bought dog clothes which were nice, some dollhouse items that were pretty good and some small toys which were pretty nice. Bought a few clothing items, all two sizes larger than me, that fit good!

Buying from Wish can be a gamble! However, many stores and items have reviews that you can check out before buying.
Also make sure to read the descriptions of the stuff, as some of the picrures are way off/wrong size etc.

I've bought aprons for painting and bibs for eating from wish and was very satisfied

Make sure you're reading dimensions. Some things are super duper tiny and you wont know unlesd you take your time reading fine print.

Thought I'd post an update. To test it out I ordered a plastic peg game for school agers. It arrived yesterday. The pegs and the part they go into are fine. The back of it is so thin I put my finger through it opening the box. I'll keep the pegs and pegboard and make a quick frame for it in my shop. Guess it was worth the $2 but I hate getting things for daycare that don't last. Probably won't order for daycare from there again.
